Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to tune up your furnace now and make sure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist item to ensure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of not using it is always a wager. It isn’t sensible to trust that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt logjam, especially if there is no planned tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful?
Routine furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems throughout the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could create potential furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Longview weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to schedule service is now before you forget!
